The Biggest Man-Made Mountain to Be Erected Over Berlin


Can you imagine a man-made mountain that is 1,000 meters tall? That is the idea recently revealed by Jakob Tigges, a German architect. The mountain will be placed in Berlin at the site where the Tempelhof airport was located. The project is entitled "The Berg" and it is expected to be the largest man-made mountain on the planet.

The Berg is expected to attract a large number of tourists, especially those who enjoy skiing. In his manifesto, the designer says that the current project made such big German cities as Munich and Hamburg feel jealous. He says: "While big and wealthy cities in many parts of the world challenge the limits of possibility by building gigantic hotels with fancy shapes, erecting sky-high office towers or constructing hovering philharmonic temples, Berlin sets up a decent mountain."

The project is really incredible but it is still doubtful, since most designers would choose eco-friendly livable buildings over a mountain that occupies a huge territory and can be used only for outdoor sports. The Berg became very popular in a rather short period of time, with the project being mentioned in a German media and gaining huge popularity on Facebook.
